Flying in a hurry

I should have waited. I am not really sure why I didn't. I did not have anywhere I had to be at that precise moment or even in the next hour. I could have parked my car outside of the garage. It would have been fine there. It wasn't raining. I did not have a bunch of stuff to take inside. I should have waited. But I didn't. I could have even moved the ladder over a bit. That would have worked as well. But I did not even do that.

What I did was back my car right into the side of the garage wall. I broke the right tail light assembly. I broke it pretty good if I do say so myself. At since it was early Sunday afternoon there was no where to get it fixed. So I could not go to the place that I was not in a hurry to go. And I wanted to cry.

And of course no one in my town or even a few towns over had that part. Someone recommended that I got to a junk yard. I was too afraid to drive with a missing tail light, plus I did not know how to remove or replace one. So I called around until I found a very nice parts guy at the sister dealership from where I usually go. Okay, I have not been there in years, but I would have gone had that guy been nicer. Anyway after spending money that I really did not have to spend I have a brand new tail light. Being in a hurry is pretty expensive.

When you hurry you're more apt to make mistakes. But you have to be quick. If you're not quick you can't get things done.
